  • Jesus can break through in those ‘cold’ moments

    When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such. With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.

    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.

    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.

  • Remaking education in Carroll County: Parents question new teaching methods during Cartmell training

    It’s no secret that test scores in the district are not at the level they need to be. So, to improve education in Carroll County, the school district is moving to personalize learning, recognizing that each student learns at his own pace, Cartmell Elementary School Principal Doug Oak said.

    The Carroll County High School JV football team posted a 6-1 record this season, bouncing back from 1-5 last year.
